Its been super chilly this past week or so in London, but that’s no excuse to lower your style standards. Asta popped out, in between snowfalls, to capture some very cool (yet cozy) East London style.

Events- Little London Fields, part 1: Details

On the 7th August, one of London’s hottest style spots got even hotter! London Fields in East London hosted the newest addition to the London based festival roster, the very lovely Little London Fields, a brilliant new, free music and arts festival.

Approaching the site through the throngs of people on Broadway Market, perusing the beautiful vintage and handmade fashion stalls, mouthwatering local food stalls as well as the quirky shops that line the street; there was a tangible buzz in the air. Inside London Fields, Festival goers lounged on the grass enjoying the sounds, sights and cider in the park. The festival was a fabulous showcase of new and up and coming music maestros, performance collectives, artists and designers. Sadly our British weather blighted what was otherwise an idyllic Summer afternoon in the park. Umbrellas came out in the crowds and others ran for cover (under trees, into tents, nearby cafes and pubs). Yet the showers didn’t last too long and in traditional British spirit the festivities carried on into the evening with a plethora of after parties to choose from.

The eclectic and alternative selection of entertainment included some of the best up and coming bands like the Brighton based synth-pop band, Mirrors and Hackney’s very own delicious Black Cherry. The Carhartt sponsored disco tent was the perfect place for booty shaking to top tunes from Cut n Shut Disco. We were very tempted to part with cash in the lovely Arts and Crafts Marquee- especially loving James Brown’s prints.

The debonair folk in attendance certainly stepped out in style, sporting some gorgeously considered and studiously self styled looks. Looking at our shots of the festival goes to show the East is undeniably the life blood of London street fashion.  We are starting this week of Little London Fields posts with a close up look at the details that make a look a ‘LOOK’! We have so many posts for you from this event that we are even posting on a Monday, which is very unusual for us, and we’ll have some double bubble two post days to come too. Hold on to your hats, this could be inspiration overload!

Accessories: On the Sunny Side

Its been a glorious couple of weeks and so Londoners have been donning a stunning selection of sunnies to complete their Summery outfits. The newest look seems to to be a Chanel influenced rounded style, but the classic Ray Ban Aviator or Wayfarer is still a good option. Here are some streetstyle shots that we have collected over the past sunny weeks around town featuring some great shady action. We’ve also dropped in a couple of stylish spec wearers too, just because they looked too cool to be left out! Enjoy…

Blinking in the Snow- Anti Cold, Pro Style part 2

As the super snowy weather continued, we continued to spot some stylish solutions the big question- “How can you look fabulous and stay warm?”. Here are some big scale, bold looks as well as something a little more subtle and retro. Take your pick on whether you want to be quietly warm or whether you’re all about rocking chunky texture and bold pattern in a bid to be cozy.

Thanks to everyone who agreed to stand still in the sub zero arctic winds so that we could take your photo.
